deleted post support in dobrado #indieweb

By Malcolm Blaney on
Talk on indiewebcamp irc this week was (as always) a good motivator to add some more features to dobrado. This time it was support for deleted posts.

The first addition was actually to SimplePie microformats parsing, which now looks for a deleted property in an h-entry. When it finds it, the content and title for the entry are set to empty strings which triggers my reader code to delete it. I haven't pushed this change to official SimplePie yet, but you can test deleting a post and watching it get removed from a feed here at unicyclic.com/indieweb. (Unfortunately there's no PuSH support yet, so updates only occur once every hour.)

The other feature I added was to delete a comment when receiving a webmention and the status code when verifying the source is 410.
